I am a songwriter, sound artist, composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer from the Isle of Skye on the west coast of Scotland.

Over the last few years, I have worked on a broad range of projects including the creation of the Hebridean Cable Transit Company with Philippa Thomas, writing original songs for the play We Have Won The Land, creating a Yeti Museum in a shipping container with artist Kate McMorrine, collaborating with Jason Singh and David Littler through their Sampler/Cultureclash project, recording and performing with Mairearad Green, and working on Story's End, a major collaborative project exploring death in narrative, with my band The Dead Man's Waltz and a host of visual and literary collaborators. In 2013 my piece 6:42am won the inaugural Martyn Bennett Prize for composition.

A new album of my songs, The Day Is Loud, is out now and you can hear it and even buy it here.

As a producer and engineer I have worked with some of the finest acts in Scotland's folk and acoustic scenes  as well as developing and producing radio drama, voice over and soundtracking. My studio is a small but sweet combination of the latest software and high end analogue processing and mixing. Get in touch or visit my production page for more info. I also manage Stiuidio Ostaig, the studio at Sabhal Mor Ostaig, and lecture as part of the Gaelic and Traditional Music degree.
